But travelers aren’t the only ones dreading the end of summer. Airlines, hotels, and the tourism industry make much of their profits in the peak summer travel season.
Fortunately for travelers, as that season draws to a close, hotels and resorts are offering all kinds of deals to keep the summer travel party going from now until well into fall. Here are some of the ones you should investigate:
